    Just one of the everyday products, mass produced by means outside the ordinary DIY'er. Cable TV "How It's Made" might show this part, NEVER what it took to evolve the tool, and all the capital equipment making it possible.

    When looking at everyday things, I often envision how it could have been made as, I'm sure, a majority of HMT viewers also do As simple looking as the finished product is, this one caught me by surprise!

    I anticipated neither the tool nor would I, after seeing the tool, have given it more than a moderate chance of succeeding in its function.

    Thanks for sharing!

    This is a low quantity die aka 'single stage die', maybe special order material or size.
    Higher rates would punch successive features as stock travels through a 'progressive die'; fed by a roll of stock. The first might take five hits, after that a new part in every stroke.
